right now, i have everything configured to use plaintext in the database. i
don't like this but it is working so for now i'm leaving it alone (not
changing the configuration for the moment).
i would like to understand how to configure Postfix to use SASL and
encrypted password with Courier and MySQL, though. if i had a better more
clear understanding of how this works, i'd be more willing to tamper with my
working configuration to see if i can get this functional. i can do without
the ability to change passwords in SquirrelMail if need be, but i really
would prefer encrypted passwords in the database. i can always tamper with
SquirrelMail's password changing plugins later on if i want to, once the
encryption with Postfix and Courier is working.
what's the best way to approach this? i spent yesterday tampering with some
settings in an attempt to achieve this, but nothing i try worked. either i
could read the passwords from Postfix and smtp worked, which broke pop3, or
i could read them from pop3 and smtp broke. i'm not sure what i'm doing
wrong. do i need to post my configs again?
thank you again, you guys have been a marvellous help. the system is
